In September 2022, members of the Women of Impact (WoI) philanthropic giving group brought their passion to support local nonprofits together and voted The Recovery Center as the 2022 third quarter grantee.
The Recovery Center serves the community with support and resources conducive to sober living while providing a safe place for sharing and peer support. Their vision is to grow an organic community that serves, encourages, and enriches those in recovery. They currently partner with many existing organizations located throughout Boone County, including Freedom Church, Shalom House, Love INC., In Well, Boone County Community Corrections, and Boone County Family Court.
The Recovery Center coordinates several meetings each week, averaging ~ 20 attendees/meeting:
Mon. Wed. Fri. 12 pm, Sat. 8 am
Crystal Meth Anonymous:
Wednesday 8 pm
Friday 7 pm
All Recovery Meeting:
Saturday 7 pm
Thursday 6:30 pm
There are many ways the community can rally behind and support The Recovery Center in its initiatives. Items they need year-round are gas cards, child care providers during scheduled meeting times, food pantry items, clothing and hygiene items, and prayers. Currently, they have additional needs of shelving and clothing racks, winter coats and gloves, drywall and carpet, plumbers, and grant writers.
